Get pregnancy test: You should get a pregnancy test. If it is negative, it is possible you start a period. If the symptom persist, you should see a doctor.

Non-specific: However, sperm cells can live up to 7 days in your vagina, so you are at risk for pregnancy: if you are old enough to have sexual intercourse, it is your adult responsibility to protect yourself with birth control pills and condoms: right?

My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex one day before my ovulation date. Six days later I am having cramps/back pains. I assume its too early to tell.

Pregnancy: There is always a chance of pregnancy with unprotected sex. Your symptoms may more likely be premenstrual, so your period may come in the next 2-5 days. I still recommend that you take a pregnancy test. In the future, always use birth control if you want to avoid pregnancy.

Misinformed?: Sore breasts and cramping are in no way signs of early pregnancy. If you go back to your health class days you will remember that a pregnant female's body has no communication or way of knowing there has been conception until the fetus has grown big enough in the uterus to be sharing blood with the mother. This occurs about fourteen days after conception. Symptoms sooner are not pregnancy.

Ovulation: No one can say for sure. Some women feel ovulation. This is called Mittelschmerz. It could have been something as simple as gas. If the pain continues or is severe then you should be evaluated by a doctor.

I had unprotected sex on may 1. Ovulated around may 8. Next day light spotting and light cramps. IS THAT IMPLANTATION?!?!

If: You had sex only on the first, the sperms will only survive about 72 hours hence will not fertilize the egg released 7 days later

Your hormones: Are likely in flux for whatever reason, and you would need to be patient to see if things would settle down. Menstrual fluctuations are affected by many different factors, including nutrition, psychological state of mind, stress, infections/ illnesses, etc. If you continue to have these symptoms and you are late menstruating, check a pregnancy test.

Mittelschmertz: This is a term used for the pain that accompanies ovulation, and which usually last for a day or so after the event. If you think the cramping is from something else, or is not improving on its own, please have an OB examine you and find out what is happening

I finished ovulating 2 days ago, had unprotected sex for the whole month and then had intercourse yesterday and bled a little - but not due period for 2 weeks, had cramp in left side today too. What could it be?

Ok: Nothing is wrong and you sound like you are on course to get pregnant. A little bleeding is meaningless as well as the cramp. Could it be a blight ovum? problem with the pregnancy. The answer is maybe but nobody knows, Maybe 30% of pregancies are lost and we only know about 10% as most are silent. Do a pregnancy test if you miss your period

Check for pregnancy: Depending upon the timing of your unprotected sex vis a vis your ovulation, you may be slightly out of the safe period. Easiest way to know for sure is to do urine pregnancy test and repeat in one week if negative.

Check pregnancy test: If you are 9 days late for your period, a home pregnancy test should be positive if you are pregnant. If it is negative, see doctor to evaluate your symptoms as they could be PMS related but could also be signs of a UTI or other infection.

Why do I feel crampy a day after unprotected sex (i am 2 days before ovulation)?

Why do I feel crampy a day after unprotected sex (i am 2 days before ovulation)?

Prostaglandins: When a man ejaculates, there are substances in his semen called prostaglandins. These can stimulate uterine contractions, which you might feel as cramps.

My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex during when I would be ovulating. He pulled out but it got close and he fingered right after. Chance of pg?

Preejaculatory fluid: The pull out method is very ineffective because it ignores one aspect of human physiology. Men secrete preejaculatory semen. There are about 4 million sperm in this fluid vs the 400, 000 million during ejaculation. Use over the counter Plan B if intercourse was within 72 hours to decrease the risk of unplanned pregnancy. Consider starting birth control or using condoms

Irregular periods: Irregular periods are one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections ; hormonal changes can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then do a home pregnancy test. There are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle. Schedule a visit.
